Arizona's Bridges: Glen Canyon Dam Bridge (1)

I have more ambivalent feelings about this Arizona bridge, not only because it was used to dam the Colorado River, but because I got a $500 ticket just before the bridge for crossing a double line to pass a recreational vehicle.

The Glen Canyon Dam Bridge was built in 1959. It's 1560 ft long and about 700 ft above the river. It looks a little bit like the new Navajo Bridge but with simple steel columns between the arch and the deck. We'll take another look at the bridge tomorrow.
